Metro's Accessibility Advisory Committee was created to address the needs of senior citizens and people with disabilities. Their efforts have resulted in numerous service upgrades including the addition of:

  • barriers between rail cars to alert customers who are blind or have low vision of the space between the rail cars and
  • gap reducers, which make it easier for customers who use wheelchairs to board Metrorail trains.

See a list of Accessibility Advisory Committee members.

People with disabilities and their advocates are welcome to attend Committee meetings in-person or virtually via "Listen to Meeting" button.  They are held the first Monday of each month from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the lobby level Meeting Room at Metro's Headquarters at 600 5th Street, NW. Members of the public who attend committee meetings are encouraged to notify Metro in advance if they require accommodations. Requests for accommodations can be made at 202-962-1100 or TTY 202-962-2033.
